I put them on display at 10:00 this morning. When the shop closed at 4:30pm more than half of them had been sold. The shop will be open on Monday at 9:30am so if you’re interested you’d better get to 407 Mare Street, Hackney, London before they’re all gone!
It’s the end of an era in my personal life. I’ve given away the last of my collection of rock LPs to the charity shop. I started collecting rock LPs in 1992. My collection began with "Genesis – A Trick of the Tail", Kim Wilde’s first LP and Kate Bush – The Kick Inside. Over the following decade my collection grew and grew until I had something like 200 LPs and 45s. Since then I’ve been getting rid of them, starting with the duff records (ugh! Why did I buy that?)… Then the fairly good ones that I haven’t played for ages. Soon I had about 30 left so I decided to get rid of them too.
